host name issue

Dear Colleagues

I am running a TCP/IP stack.
I can get to my gateway, other IP devices on my network and can even connect to my HP network printer but I still can't get beyond my network to the internet. When I run Aweb I get the following message:

"cannot resolve the host name "...."

My Host File entry: localhost amiga2000

nameserver file entry:
nameserver ---> same as my gateway that host my DNS

Here a ping output from my MAC computer:

ping amiga2000
ping: cannot resolve amiga2000: Unknown host

PING ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=185.672 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=12.671 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=10.190 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=255 time=13.615 ms

Do I need another entry somewhere?

It sounds to me like the Domain Name Server isn't right.
